Brooklyn Nine-Nine's New Episodes Scrapped Amid Police Brutality Protests

Police officer comedy show Brooklyn Nine-Nine had four brand new season episodes already written but those episodes have been totally scrapped after the protests against police brutality in order to examine law enforcement’s role in society.

One of the show’s stars Terry Crews spoke about the episodes.

“Our showrunner Dan Goor, they had like four episodes all ready to go — they just threw them in the trash,” Terry told Access. “They’re like, ‘We’ve got to start over.”

“Right now, we don’t know which direction we’re going to go in, but we do know that we’ve had a lot of somber talks, we’ve had a lot of very, very deep conversations, and through this we hope to bring something that could really, really truly be groundbreaking this year,” Terry added. “We have an opportunity here and we plan to use it in the best, best way possible.”

Another TV show is going to be addressing police brutality in 2020 as well.
